FAS8020 upgrade from 9.1 to 9.2 - no LIF failover

machinist

Hi, I've been preparing for this upgrade and chose to use the automated method through OCM. When it finishes validating the update it throws a couple of warnings. One of those is to run manual checks to verify a few last things.

One of those checks looks at LIF failover and it's here I noticed that my 4x LIFs have no failover policy, i.e. all disabled. I have 2 FCP interfaces per node = 4x LIFs in total.

 

Should I have a failover policy for my FCP LIFs?

I've upgraded from 8.3.2 to 9.1 in the past with no issues whatsoever.

 

Thanks

FCP LIFs never fall over - that's by design.
